Magic Numbers – Even and Odd Mr. Mime-GX Deck

Hello everybody, and welcome to a sneak peak at a card from the next set, Champion Road. Today I will be looking at the disgusting Mr. Mime-GX cards, and making a Mr. Mime-GX deck.

Mr. Mime-GX

Mr. Mime-GX 150HP [P]

Left: [ABILITY] Magic Odds
If this Pokemon would be damaged by an attack, prevent that attack’s damage done to this Pokemon if that damage is 10, 30, 50, 70, 90, 110, 130, 150, 170, 190, 210, 230, or 250.

Right: [ABILITY] Magic Evens
If this Pokemon would be damaged by an attack, prevent that attack’s damage done to this Pokemon if that damage is 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, 180, 200, 220, 240, or 260.

Both: [P][C] Breakdown

Weakness – [NONE]
Resistance – [NONE]
Retreat Cost – [C][C]

Strategy

As you can probably already tell, the main purpose of these cards is to prevent damage with the abilities. Unfortunately, there are some flaws. For example, your opponent could use something like a Choice Band to change the damage from odd to even. Also, Mr. Mime-GX doesn’t have a very good attack, so it is reduced to a mediocre stall deck… or is it?

Donphan CHR

The new Donphan card from Champion Road synergises very well with this Mr. Mime, as it allows you to deal damage, then have both players switch their Pokémon to the bench. This wouldn’t good, but Donphan says that your opponent switches first. You deal damage, your opponent switches, and you put up the appropriate Mr. Mime to deal with the active.

Lysandre Labs FBL

But what about all those pesky tools? What if Choice Band changes the number, or Float Stone ruins the combo entirely? Lysandre Labs is the answer. This way, tool cards have no effect, and you can lock your opponent’s active up there with nothing to do, unless they pay the retreat cost or use Guzma.

Dunsparce CHR

The only thing left to do is find a nice setup card. Alolan Vulpix is nice, but doesn’t quite cut it. The answer: Dunsparce. It has an attack that says:

Search your deck for up to 3 Basic Pokemon and put them on your Bench. Then, shuffle your deck. You may switch this Pokemon with 1 of your Benched Pokemon.

This means that for a single colorless energy, you can bring up 3 new Pokémon, namely two Mr. Mime and a Phanpy, and then switch for the appropriate Mr. Mime, if you want to. It just ties everything up so elegantly, into a sort of disgusting tangle of a deck.
